TRUMP; NEVER GIVE UP

COACH TRUMP: Make it happen in your life. 

One line I will never fail to remember every single day. From that very moment I was able to glance at each word that makes of it.

So simple yet overflowing of hope that someday, I will get to that certain point of my existence that I can make my family proud.

I was never a book reader so definitely I cannot call myself a bookworm as they call it.

In fact I can still remember during my grade school days wherein we were required to do book reviews for one of our class and we had to do tons of them for the whole academic year. We’ll I’m not encouraging anyone who will be able to read this and is going through the same requirement. But never, even once was I able to finish one whole book for any of my book reviews back then. (My apologies to my English Prof back grade school)

But this book had mark that end of me not reading any books.

This is Donald J Trump.

This book here is definitely something that did not only open my eyes to reading. But filled me with hopes and encouragement in my life as a whole.

I was able to relate everything that he said on this book not only because I was also engaged in a real estate industry but because he made every point so clear on general terms.

Believe me, If only I have the capacity to memorize the whole book i really would. Because it teaches what happened, what’s happening, and what may happen again. Not only to his own life but to everybody. Let me share to you some of it.

RECOGNIZE OPPORTUNITY ; even at the most awful circumstance of a day.

Think BIG ; Think CREATIVELY

At the very end here’s the TOP 10 great points according to him on which I will never protest nor disagree.

  1. Never give up; Don’t just settle in remaining within your comfort zone
  2. be passionate
  3. be focused ; shut out all the interference
  4. Keep your momentum ; LISTEN, APPLY & MOVE FORWARD
  5. see yourself VICTORIOUS
  6. be tenacious
  7. be LUCKY; the harder you work the LUCKIER you get
  8. Believe in yourself
  9. ask yourself; what am I pretending not to see?
  10. look at the SOLUTION; not the PROBLEM

I don’t want to pretend like I’m the Miss Know-all girl. Cause I’m not.

Especially with the guy responsible of this book but perhaps in any case this would be the exact same book you’d need to get all the encouragement possible.

Especially to a young person like me who is just starting to be exposed to everything there is in the real world.

I hope you’d have the same fun learning from this one. 🙂

 

BTW few more thoughts from the book.

PROBLEMS ARE OPPORTUNITIES IN DISGUISE

YOU CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM WITH THE SAME THINKING THAT MADE IT.

My fellow Lasallians. My batchmates. A real good friend and a new bonded friend. 
 
One weekend not far from today. I had a few visitors from California and Dubai.
 
Surprisingly they were the visitors I never expected to have at my paradise home.
 
Rawlin is a good friend of mine back in highschool. Since she migrated to California, (I think) I never had the chance to see her or spend time with her. 
 
While Ivan on the other hand was just a random friend in high school as well  whom I just say “hi” or nod my head a little whenever we bump each other at the hall way of our classrooms or by the discipline office. Just a typical batchmate to make it short. 
 
So there it was, an afternoon to spend and have some fun with this two along with Ernan and Grace whom I also met here in UAE.

Few bites of chicken by the Sea shore. Few gulps  of cola from the plastic cups. Few pieces of french fries. Then comes a moment of fun by the sea of such a wonderful place where I live. 
But then again, it didn’t end there. We then went on for a dip by the pool. Then it was time for the ladies to sit back and relax as the two chefs we were with do their thing at the kitchen. 
 
It’s one of the priceless things in life I really appreciate at that very moment. Sharing stories while having dinner and having a few drinks after. Appreciating a renewed friendship and the new ones. 
 
For once which hopefully won’t be the last I have shared my relaxing then with a good old friend and the new. 
 
I appreciated life more as I took a few relaxing moments with them.
